If you’re in the market for something really cheap yet chic for Lunar New Year (because, you know, you spent more than you allocated for yourself over Christmas and New Year), here’s something that’s guaranteed not to bust your budget (also known as what’s left in the bank account). From S/S15 Kenzo comes a series of bags and clutches that are not only brightly-hued, but also made of canvas for hard-wearing use. Take the Kanvas Clutch for example, cobalt blue on one side, fluorescent yellow on the other and trimmed with leather that goes around the clutch. Priced at EUR95, or around SGD114 after conversion via Kenzo online, it could be just the clutch you need to hoard (I mean, hold) all your festive red packets.
If you’re looking for something bigger, there’s a cute duffle from the same series available online via Net-A-Porter. In the same colours and trim, the 31 cm by 20 cm bag that’s retailing for GP275 comes with a long shoulder sling and is a great bag for say, gym gear or a quick weekend getaway. There’s also a round tambourine shoulder for GBP180, a drawstring bucket in pink/orange/black for GBP260 and another variation of the Kanvas Clutch (GBP75) that comes in the same bright colour combination. Keen? Hit this link for a close-up look.
And no, I’m not nearly done yet. Last but not least, head to MATCHESFASHION and check out another style from the same family, a long-handled (and I mean long) tote that’s only retailing for around SGD230 or so. Great for lugging around those mandarin oranges, I say. #boyonbudget
